Meg Blumbergs work is both relaxing and strikes a chord of nostalgia within a listener. Her pieces are presented with poise and taste rarely found in the artist community today. Portrayed with eloquence her piano and chamber ensemble perform compositions of hers such as “Happenstance” with grace. The way the instrumentation flows between full chamber to solo piano creates a sense of class within the listener that reminds this listener of a backyard wedding with wine, champagne, brie cheese and crackers. While that may sound a little goofy coming from a writer who generally covers garage rock and indie electronic, sometimes I am able to enjoy the finer things in life such as Meg Blumbergs music. Below I have attached another writers description of her work.
“Influenced by the likes of Dustin O’Halloran, Ólafur Arnalds, Max Richter and other neo-classical giants, Meg’s piano compositions are truly a blend of old and new. Her style is deliberate and visceral, weaving rich narratives through measured shifts in movement and dynamics. She oftentimes implements a melody-driven discipline in composition, whereby the central theme of a piece takes an unrivaled lead and establishes the character or mood with which to build around. This is not to say that Meg’s work is minimalist; she isn’t afraid to take a piece somewhere unexpected or furnish it with complementary layers. Rather, she doesn’t let harmony or instrumentation overshadow the main communication of her work, which is to be found in the melody.
In addition to Nocturnal Blue, she also released singles Marks and Flightless in 2017. She is currently working on her first EP, which is expected to be released later in 2018.”
